Meghen Duvala And Robert Ellingson - Jailed After Allegedly Attempting To Sell Own Baby For $30......Twice
Pensacola, Florida (The Weekly Vice) – 23-year-old Robert G. Ellingson and 25-year-old Maghen Duvala were jailed after they allegedly attempted to sell their 2-month-old baby for $30 in two different parking lots.
According to Escambia County police, Ellinson attempted to sell his own child to two PetsMart store patrons after they refused a beer that he offered them in the parking lot.
The customers dismissed the man at first thinking it was a joke, but when the mother of the baby confirmed that they were in fact trying to sell their baby, the patrons promptly called the police.
Investigators say that the couple also attempted to sell their child in a bank parking lot a few hours before the incident at PetsMart.
Ellison and Duvala were both booked into Escambia County Jail and charged with five counts of child neglect apiece. Ellison’s bail was set at $27,000 and Duvall’s bail was set at $15,000.
